Not sure about RRHOF, but "Come and Get Your Love" is a classic.

Gotta say highly underrated band. Two classic rock radio staples:

Come and Get Your Love
Witch Queen of New Orleans

Neat mix of musical styles (60s rock, cajun, jazz guitar soloing) and the original drummer was pretty wicked.

Redbone should absolutely at least be nominated. They have sold 18 million records and have earned 2 American and numerous European gold records. Their music remains highly relevant today, combining the styles of blues, Cajun, American rock and rhythm and blues. They are the ONLY Native American band every to break the top 10.

Redbone absolutely belongs in the RRHF! They created the modern Swamp Rock genre with their classic, "Niki Hoeky," and were a significant cultural, political and musical force in America as rock's first Native America band. Please SIGN/SHARE the petion to get Redbone inducted:

I just signed the petition, altho I don't usually DO petitions. Pat & Lolly Vegas who founded Redbone have a compelling story and the "swamp rock" sound was their own. Talented guys. Yes, Redbone SHOULD get nominated.

BTW: Redbone not to be confused w/ Leon Redbone, thats a different artist.
